I think the fact that Boris was cycling is irrelevant here and I'm not quite sure why the article puts such a focus on it. When a truck hurls a car out in front of you it doesn't make much difference how you're travelling. Would the article get as many hits if the headline read "Boris nearly ki...

Have any other instructors had a problem recieving their CTSB number from CTC? I've been waiting since November to recieve one, chased it up endlessly, and really don't want to have to e-mail and nag again. Getting a bit fed up to be honest.
Yep, definitely my right leg. The muscles around my left knee often twinge quite painfully, so I tend to consciously use my right leg to provide "pushing power" when starting up or climbing hills.
If the way to do it is to have so called accredited trainers which I am not 100% agreeing with but my point is that it is the parents responsibility to teach their children by organising training with 'trainers' if they do not feel capable themselves or by teaching them personally. I understand you...
Why on earth should teachers have to go and be cycle trainers as well. it should mainly be the parents to sort this out, if they cant be bothered why should others. How do you overcome the issue of children who don't have bikes. The problem is the same as those whose parents can't or won't pay for ...
Schools have plenty of time for cycle training - Personal Social Health Education (better known as PSHE) lessons. Usually about an hour a week, the syllabus includes education on drugs, alcohol, sexual health, fitness, environmental issues, citizenship and road safety. Personally I always thought i...

This is an excellent idea, I'll be wearing an armband. This horrible accident happened just a few miles from where I live, and knowing the road I can't imagine how the driver could've possibly not seen him. Reading the TT's forum on this is so sad;, they're such a close community and this has hit th...
I love really dark chocolate, and I eat absolutely loads of it. I'm office-bound today and there's a Waitrose next door, so I might go buy a buy some of that "Venezuela Black" that montmorency mentions...or just any other bar of dark chocolate...I'll feedback later. This topic needs to be...
I think most teenage boys they tend not to look where they're going. Teenagers in general have terrible road sense. Ahem...as a National Standards cycling instructor, a former HGV and PCV driver, and also an instructor for the IAM, RoSPA and DIAmond advanced driving tests, I have to voice my indign...

Knowing nothing about recumbents or cycle racing, I can't comment on the technicalities of your review - but it was extremely well written and enjoyable to read, so thanks for that
Wow Mick, that last picture is stunning! Such a contrast to the scenery we have here, deep in the heart of the flat Fens. My idea of a hill climb is tackling the particularily large speedbump outside Asda.
